Comics Britannia on BBC4

I watched Comics Britannia on BBC4 last night, an episode that focused on more modern comics, ones which a parent probably wouldn't want a young child to read.

I'm not what you call a comic geek, but I've read a couple of the more "adult" orientated comics (and graphic novels), so I found last night's programme very interesting.

A pleasingly large section of the programme was devoted to Alan Moore. His V For Vendetta, Watchmen and Lost Girls (which is not one I'd recommend for the easily offended) are among my favourite books of all time, so it was interesting listening to the man himself talk about his creations.

I think I got into this series a bit too late, so I'm looking forward for a repeat showing sometime soon.
